Korea’s Finecut has pre-sold Min Kyu-dong’s erotic period drama The Treacherous, starring Ju Ji-hoon, to Pretty Pictures for France and French-speaking Swiss pay-TV.
Finecut has also sold Im Kwon-taek’s Revivre to Taiwan’s Way Sen International, which plans to release the film after Taipei Film Festival in July.
In addition, Finecut’s period drama The Royal Tailor has gone to Turkey (Sinema TV), Thailand (Coral Culture Contents) and the Philippines (Viva Entertainment). Viva Entertainment also acquired Finecut’s Fashion King, while Coral Culture Contents took both Haemoo and Chronicle Of A Blood Merchant.
Finecut is also introducing Kim Ki-duk’s new film Stop and Yeon Sang-ho’s zombie animation Seoul Station to buyers in Cannes. Both films are currently in post-production.
The Seoul-based company’s slate also includes Shin Su-won’s Madonna, which is screening in Un Certain Regard; Lee Najeong’s Snowy Road, about ‘comfort women’; Jung Ji-woo’s coming-of-age drama Fourth Place (working title); and Park Eun-gyoung and Lee Dong-ha’s thriller Circle Of Atonement.
